gavlew 0 Posted January 18, 2013 Share Posted January 18, 2013 I came to this forum looking for a way to nest notebooks (to more than one level). I see that lots of people have already requested this, and the consensus amongst the advanced users is that everyone should learn to use tags. So I've tried using tagging for the past month and I just don't believe that tags are the most streamlined way for me to organise my stuff. Most importantly I want to have a visual map of where my things are. This is much easier by organising my notes into notebooks. Similarly tagging means that I need to spend time actually writing the tag, ok this only takes a few seconds, but still the whole point of evernote is that it allows you to get your thoughts down quickly without the software getting in the way. It seems strange that if so many people ask for a feature they are told they are using the software in the wrong way. When we studied design at school we were told that the product should be made to fit the user, not the other way around. Why should new users have to learn to use the software the 'correct' way, a way that may not be so intuitive to their workflow. Sure, tags allow you to have tags in multiple categories, but to be honest I don't think its really time effective to put more than one tag per note anyway. I suppose my major grip is that it just doesn't seem that it would be that hard to implement, and for me, and I'm sure lots of other users, it is a major design flaw with this software. Please evernote can you sort this out! Link to comment
